we have been discussing the idea of email notification - theres a ticket on open about it assigned to me. I think and so do a few others that email is to invasive and so an RSS is the way to go. I have written up a little method that seems to work for me :D

Check it out at http://pastie.caboo.se/187947. Pretty simple function, just select the comments as dataobjects and output to an RSS feed!

I have that in the Page_Controller class and to view / subscribe its available at yoursite.com/home/commentrss.

If you have any improvements on it that would be great to hear!

EDIT: this is actually built-into silverstripes page comment class. I should have looked more throughly - Visit yoursite.com/PageComment/rss to see the latest comments. No need for custom code

just playing round but it might be nice for users to be able to subscribe as well I guess. If you want to add a little RSS icon in the browser window add this code to your Page_Controller -> init() function

RSSFeed::linkToFeed($this->Link() . "commentrss", "Latest Comments");

That will create a link in the <head> section to the commentrss feed and a nice little icon in the browser!

Should have probably checked this early but it appears viewing all comments IS actually an option thats in the core. You just need to view - yoursite/PageComment/rss. No need for custom code yays!

Thankfully this was documented on the wiki too, so no digging around the forum:
